Comments Off on Number of incidents recorded on CCTV in Lincoln up by 23 percent
The number of incidents logged and analysed by CCTV operators in Lincoln has soared by 23 percent over the last year, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
Steve Bird, Assistant Director for Communities and Street Scene at the City of Lincoln Council, said monitoring is now much broader. He explained: “Additional training now means that the operators can be more proactive in their monitoring and are able to identify those persons known to commit crime and monitor them, if they are within their known area of operation.
“This helps to prevent crime from taking place as people are often aware they are being monitored and they adjust their behaviour accordingly.
“The recorded rise in the number of ‘incidents’ is also due to a new approach in the way the CCTV operators work.
“They are now much more involved in monitoring the city centre in a wider sense, not only for possible crimes being committed but also, for example, to keep an eye out for people reported as missing or for those who may be considering self-harm.”
CCTV Surveillance has a very comprehensive level of expertise in the field of security installations, delivering high-quality, bespoke installations, designed to perfectly match the customers’ needs.
One of the main features of our CCTV systems is that they are integrated to work with a standard PC monitor via sophisticated CCTV software that allows individual users to set their own criteria for viewing selected footage from particular CCTV cameras within the network. Password and security features limit the viewing of certain cameras to specific groups of people, enabling you to securely manage who is able to see particular areas of activity.
The CCTV software enables “live” footage to be viewed remotely from any or all connected CCTV cameras as events happen and without degradation of video quality, allowing you to monitor your premises when offsite.
Its site tree facility allows servers and individual cameras to be accessed quickly, and the inclusion of the multi-site viewing facility makes the management of sites more efficient and responses to events even quicker.
Remote management of your CCTV network via LAN, WAN, or the internet is also possible through the CCTV software. Historical footage can be viewed remotely, and DVR setup parameters can be configured.
